    Information Windows 10 has the Settings, Devices, Start, Share, and Search charms available. Charms are context sensitive to the location (desktop vs Start screen) and application that is running when opened.

    This tutorial will show you how to open the charms to search, share, print, and more in Windows 10.

    For more information about Charms, see: Use the charms


    Open Charms in Windows 10 [​IMG]
    Note The charms bar will stay open until you either click/tap on a charm or on an empty area of the screen.

    You can also use the up and down arrow keys and Enter to select and open a charm.


    Charm Shortcut Keys and Descriptions

    Search (Windows+Q) – Search for anything. You can search just the app you're in (like finding a specific message in Mail), search another app (look up something on the Internet), or you can search your entire PC (for an app, setting, or file).

    Share (Windows+H) – Share files and info with people you know or send info to another app, without leaving the app you're in. You can email photos to your mom, update your Facebook status, or send a link to your note–taking app.

    Start (Windows) – Get to your Start screen. Or if you're already on Start, you can use this charm to go back to the last app you were in.

    Devices (Windows+K) – Use all of the devices that are connected to your PC, both wired and wireless. You can print from an app, sync with your phone, or stream your latest home movie to your TV.

    Settings (Windows+I) – Change settings for apps and your PC. You'll find settings, help, and info for the app you're in, plus common PC settings—network connection, volume, brightness, notifications, power, and keyboard. These PC settings are the same no matter where you are in Windows, but the app settings are different in every app. You can also change settings for your PC when you select Change PC settings. It's where you change your lock screen picture, manage notifications, and more.

  2. Where is my Charms bar in Windows 10?

    Hi Rifa,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    Charms bar is no more available in Windows 10. Ctrl + c is used in Windows 8.1 to open Charms bar where it is used to open Cortana in Windows 10.

    Hope this helps. Please reply if you need further assistance.

    Thank you.
